Ho Chi Minh City voters voice concerns over corruption

Corruption remains a pressing problem that needs to be addressed as soon as possible, voters in Ho Chi Minh City’s District 4 said during their meeting with President Truong Tan Sang on October 15.

Anti-corruption offices succeeded in detecting numerous cases, but their operations were not really effective, they commented.

Regarding health, voters pointed out difficulties in paying for treatment using health insurance at specialised hospitals. They also urged the sector to take responsibility for cases of unhygienic food services and the import of used medical equipment.

The increasing number of traffic accidents is another concern for voters. They proposed the National Assembly set up a mechanism to reorder traffic.

Other matters under discussion included the high number of public servants, which has put pressure on the State budget; high tuition fees at the beginning of the school year; and an increase in criminal cases.

President Truong Tan Sang appreciated the voters’ constructive opinions.

He said cuts to public services were not a decisive factor, but professional performance would need to be monitored closely. It was therefore necessary to improve the skills and quality of work of civil servants.

He called upon the public to support the State in the fight against wastefulness.

The State leader also highlighted the need for local authorities to work with all relevant units to combat crime and ensure local security.
